Avatar Picture Help


After following the avatar portion of the technical area, I still cant get my avatar to be visible on the forum. I am using images from [sign in to see URL], but when I enter the URL format as specified in the forum help link, I get an error message that the link must start with "http". I've tried all the possible formats and none seem to work. I get a box with a ? in it, or sometimes an empty black box, or photobucket message saying I've removed the picture.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Did you make sure your photobucket account, or at least the avatar, is not set to private? I think you can make individual pictures public.

Its a public image, but the forum won't even let me upload the photo per the help instructions.

Try this, go to Control Panel, it may be listed as Bat Computer Control Panel.

This should be a direct link: [sign in to see URL]

Next, on the left, click on Miscellaneous Settings.

Click on Avatar, location, etc.

Copy and paste the link from your photobucket picture into the box titled "My avatar".

Save settings and go back to the forum.

Hopefully that will work.

You can use pictures hosted from anywhere as long as you know the address of the image and the site that is hosting it allows for hotlinking... I'm not sure if Facebook allows it or not.
